Great Company as a whole, be careful of the individual property you choose to work for.

    Pros

    Marriott discount... Maybe some free food. Thats pretty much it.

    Cons

    This is a very typical starter position job. That said even for your typical starter position this one is strikingly bad. Mismanaged, understaffed, apathetic... and its not a corporate hotel so there will be no corporate benefits. There are other hotels in the area. If you want to be in hospitality choose from those. This one needs a rehaul. The brand is made to look like the typical "corporate family" deal, but the morale says something different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can give it, but it will be lost within chains of command or on the deaf ears of investing pools (or corporate). There is no followthrough at this place, only punishment and memos.

    Pros

    Great place that had a friendly atmosphere, with employees dedicated to doing their best for the business units. The intiatives we worked on were very interesting and kept us engaged.

    Cons

    Marriott is now outsourcing their IT department to companies with offshore contract employees. They think it will help them be competitive, but it is going to decrease productivity and efficiency that was in place prior to the outsourcing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to realize that other companies that had outsourced are now insourcing. Outsourcing really isn't going to save money in the long run because you will spend so much extra money cleaning up faulty programs implemented by offshore contractors.
